A lawyer for the family of a 13-year-old California girl declared brain dead after surgery says she has arrived safely at a new location, but that Jahi McMath was in "bad shape."

She had been at Children's Hospital Oakland but the family moved her Sunday night. The hospital had wanted to remove Jahi from the ventilator that is keeping her heart pumping, arguing in court that Jahi's brain death, an absence of blood flow and electrical activity in her brain, means she is legally dead.
